IT’S IMPOSSIBLE TO RESIST THE TEMPTATION OF THEBEST ITALIAN PRODUCTS IN OIL AND PRESERVES ONLINE
Ready for a journey through the most delicious typical Italian products around? Our tradition of preserving boasts some fantastic products that are truly irresistible. For example, amongst the best Italian products in oil and preserves onlineto be found on Italy Bite, you can find highly sought-after porcini mushrooms, as well as the rarer red cap porcini mushrooms, both in pieces and whole. They make for an excellent appetiser or a spectacular garnish for your dishes. Fantastic treats from the forest that are processed exclusively by hand to preserve their integrity and intense aroma.
In a peninsula like Italy, the sea is also an immeasurable treasure. It is in small fishing villages that this magic truly takes shape, as all the flavour of the sea is encapsulated in a jar using truly ancient techniques.
Not a lot of people know that the great Southern Italian tradition of preserves is at its finest not only when it comes to tuna - which we offer in the Mediterranean, Bluefin and Albacore varieties - and mackerel in oil, but also less common preserves, such as octopus, cuttlefish, yellowtail or swordfish in oil.
Our sundried tomatoes are sourced strictly from Puglia: they are harvested and processed by hand, almost ritualistically, and then preserved in exquisite local extra virgin olive oil. As such, Puglian products in oil are packed with all the aroma of the oil produced in this land filled with old farmhouses and sunkissed dry stone walls.
One of the boldest and most dominant flavours in all of Italian cuisine is, without a doubt, Calabrian ‘nduja, which is unmatched. In our catalogue of the best Italian products in oil and preserves online, you can enjoy it as part of interesting spicy pâtés enriched with onions, olives, tuna or sundried tomatoes. The ingredients are carefully selected and measured out, with the addition of salt and naturally-dried chilli.
And from our beloved Tuscany? Crisp and flavoursome vegetables in oil, ready-to-eat traditional dishes - such as tripe, ribollita and comforting legume soups – and excellent meat sauces featuring Chianina beef. Because as we all know, people who work have less and less time to cook dishes that require a long time to prepare, and traditional dishes - simple though they may be - are not always that easy to replicate.
Why not opt for a beautiful ready-made soup, made without the addition of colourings, preservatives or chemical additives, just the highest-quality seasonal ingredients? On Italy Bite, you can find plenty of flavours, and they are perfect if you don’t want to compromise on enjoying delicious, genuine, traditional food: simply warm them up and add a slice of crusty bread, a drizzle of olive oil and freshly-ground black pepper for a wonderful meal.
